I hope everyone had a great Christmas. I know we did. Our son and his family, who live in NJ, Skyped us Christmas morning, and we got to see the grands open their presents. What fun!
Later in the afternoon, Hubby and I went to my aunt's house for a big supper with all the cousins and their spouses.
My aunt always makes homemade egg nog. Whoo! Hoo! Between the egg nog and the rum balls one of the cousins made, we didn't dare breath anywhere near the candles. :)
There isn't much new going on around the house right now. We don't take down our decorations til after the New Year, so there's nothing new to show you. It's so cold and windy today, all I want to do is curl up on the sofa with a cozy throw and something warm to drink.
I think our son is trying to encourage us to be "suphis-tu-cated". One of the Christmas presents he gave us is a pair of beautiful copper mugs...for serving Moscow Mules.
Well, DUH! I'd never heard of a Moscow Mule. I thought I'd make one, but after looking up the recipe, I decided there was no way I was making an ice cold drink in this weather. So, I decided to fill my mug with Chai latte...hot Chai latte.
I use tea bags, making it according to the directions...or a bit stronger... adding milk and white or brown sugar to taste.
You can also make it from scratch. Here's a link for the recipe.
Of course, I'm not compensated in any way for mentioning this brand.
A large dollop of whipped cream on top is really yummy, too...
...and a slice...or two, of fruit cake. Ok...ok...I know some of you don't like fruit cake...you can just pass on the fruit cake.
There. I'm feeling warmer already. Come on over. I'll make a latte for you, too.
I'll be by to visit everyone to see what you're doing for the New Year.
If it's cold like it is today, I might just have another latte, and watch the ball drop on TV.
